Benefits for conference organizers

NetSuite can be accessed at any time from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection. This provides organizers with greater flexibility and choice in how, when, and where they log transactions and assess the financial status of their event. It also provides multi-currency and language support to simplify use, regardless of where a conference is held.

Real-time reports on financial activity are available throughout the life of the conference, providing increased financial analysis and control. Historical data for annual conferences will help organizers and financial sponsors to plan and manage conference budgets.

With all transactions in a single report, conference closing and audits can be completed in a greatly accelerated manner.

Using NetSuite to record conference transactions

NetSuite is used to record all your financial transactions; however, NetSuite is not currently an online banking tool. Organizers can utilize NetSuite for documenting conference finance activities, including:

  • Recording all revenue and expense items
  • Recording all fund transfers (between conference bank accounts)
  • Producing your conference’s final financial report
Conference budgeting with NetSuite

Conferences should continue with the current ICX process for budgeting and forecasting. The IEEE MCE Conference Operations team will migrate ICX budget information and subsequent updates into NetSuite on behalf of conferences.

Conference reporting with NetSuite

You will be able to run the following reports in NetSuite:

  • Income statement
  • Balance sheet
  • Budget versus actual
NetSuite accounts for conferences

The IEEE MCE Business Operations team will set up a unique NetSuite account for your conference and will assist you with any questions you may have.
